Nice to see they are at least looking at a plan. Water is relatively cheap and plentiful in Canada, often you pay more for the connection than for the water itself. The cities also tend to add surcharges to pay for sewage systems which actually makes a lot of sense (water in sewage out) and cuts some of the political fighting out of it.
